I am delighted to join and be a part of the United Yacht Sales Team in their NW territory and stand ready to list and sell your Yacht with vigor and enthusiasm!!

I have been in the business since 1970, with 42 years of experience in boating and sales in the Northwest, and am familiar with most products having to do with the boating industry.

As landed emigrant in Vancouver, B.C., I was the owner of Canadian Uniflite Yacht Sales from 1976 to 1984. I’ve sold many Uniflites to my Canadian friends over the years!  After moving back to Seattle in 1984 I worked as a broker for Vantare International, Western Yacht Sales, Yacht Sales International and eventually started, owned and operated Seattle Yacht Sales at 1220 Westlake Ave N., on Lake Union in Seattle, from 1998 to 2005.

I have sold them all, large and small! Uniflite, Hatteras, Bertram, Ocean Alexander, Grand Banks, Grand Alaskan, Tiara, Viking, Ocean and Tollycraft to mention a few!  I am a member of the Tollycraft Cruising Club and have come to know most of the Tolly owners over the years! I’ve sold many models of the Tollycraft production and am particularly fond of the 48’s, 57’s, 61’s, and 65’s.

As an active member of The Puget Sound Yacht Club, Northwest Marine Trades Association and the Navy League of Lake Washington, I am active in promoting boating in the Northwest in capacity.  I am also the oldest yacht broker in Seattle… Not by age but by years in the business!

As published in Northwest Yachting (Issue Jan 2012), in December 2011 I had the pleasure of selling the Tugboat ‘Wallace Foss’ to John and Janet Whitney, of Newport, Rhode Island. The Wallace Foss was built in Tacoma in 1897 during the Alaskan gold rush and was the first Tug commissioned into service for ‘Foss Tug’ of Seattle. She is history, tells quite a story and is now a very comfortable yacht of pleasure where she hails out of Newport, Rhode Island.

My experience and knowledge will help me make your transaction, whether buying or selling, go as smoothly and quickly as possible!

In short, you need a place to lay your head on a pillow at the end of the day, a car to get you there, but YOU WANT A BOAT!!!

Earning Your Trust………………….One boat at a Time!

Let me earn yours!
